Herman Miller designer from ’30s and ’40s honored with postage stamp

Saturday 20 August 2011

Gilbert Rohde, who died in 1944, was one of the most influential and innovative furniture designers in the United States. The U.S. Postal Service has issued a stamp commemorating his work which is one of 12 designers featured in the “Pioneers of American Industrial Design” commemorative series.
Rohde was one of the most influential and innovative furniture designers in the United States. His designs for Herman Miller in the 1930s and 1940s were based on simplicity and practicality and marked the beginning of modern design at the company, the press release from the post office said.

His association with the Herman Miller Furniture Company, where he took on the role of design director, began in 1932. Instead of the period reproductions popular at the time, Rohde’s work drew on contemporary styles in art and architecture incorporating functionality, minimalism and biomorphic shapes. He also successfully guided the company’s marketing and promotion efforts, including writing and designing advertisements.
